Hi, I'm new on this board.
Two weeks ago I did'nt even know the existance
of a Dunn engine. I was looking for a hit & miss
flywheel farm engine but it was not what I was looking for. The guy told me, I have an other
engine, but it's a marine engine. I said let's
take a look at it. It was supposed to be a 1910 Dunn 2 cylindre engine. The engine was good looking, real clean and was turning free.
I said why not and got it for $500 canadian.
I've seen a 1911 on a picture and it looks
exactly the same. So it could be close to it.
My questions are, is there a place where I can find parts for that engine? The carburetor, the magneto or distributor, the water pump are missing. Is it worthed the trouble and money
to find the missing parts?
I'll send some pictures later. Thanks
Phil

Hi, I'm sorry, I can't send you photos of my engine.
I've tried many times but it always failed.
I don't know why. Is your adress board@oldmarineengine.com correct?
If not let me know.

Philippe, at the top of this page click on SEARCH and type in DUNN, there is an immense amount of info, look at approx 1909 info with timer on out put shaft. The oiler on your eng was not a factory item, but is a period oiler and
makes your eng unique !

Yes, very interesting and very early by the look of it. Can you tell us what area it was used in and where approximately you bought it?

The big hand forged lifting eye screwed into the head is a hoot!

As for the missing parts, best place to start looking is the man who sold it, and if not him, the place where he bought it.

Thanks for posting!

Hello Philippe, thanks for your reply. I don't have any information to offer, except that as the engine was not scavenged for brass etc., and has obviously sat in a barn or somewhere undisturbed for a long time, it's quite possible that the missing parts were in the same place, just not recognized by the buyer of the engine, if you see what I mean? Where this engine was used the St. Lawrence is fresh water only perhaps? Otherwise it would be much more rusty I suppose. Welcome to the world of old marine engines - they're really much more interesting than engines that stay at home all their lives!

Hi, can anyone help me with that.
My engine does'nt have spark plugs
and carburetor. What make and model
or number spark plugs and carb do
I need? My engine is the one you can
see higher and is a Dunn twin circa
1910. Any help would be apreciated.
Thank you. Philippe
